Soroush: Vote for Mullah Karrubi!

In this interview with Rooz, an “opposition” website in Canada created recently by Haj-Agha Hossein Derakhshan, the reformist Islamist “intellectual” Abdolkarim Soroush relates his support for Ayatollah Karrubi as Iran’s new president of the republic.

In an article published by the Boston Globe last year, Soroush, the former head of Khomeini’s HCCR, was described as “the democrat” trying to “reconcile religious duties and human rights,” with the additional assurance that “although he once worked for Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's revolutionary government, he now advances a powerful argument for democracy and human rights!”

Soroush and his ilk are quite discredited within the Iranian community already, but I hope non-Iranians can learn a lesson or two here on the veracity and credibility of some of the Iran-related articles they read.
